Aberdeen-based oil and gas services giant Wood Group said it was awarded a new contract by Maersk to deliver mechanical and management services for the hook-up and commissioning of the Culzean gas condensate field in the UK central North Sea.
“At peak manning, approximately 200 new jobs will be created by the project to support the new three platform, high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) development, which is expected to begin production in 2019,” said Wood.
The three year contract is effective immediately.
Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood Group’s Asset Life Cycle Solutions business in the Eastern region said: “Maersk’s decision to award us this new contract to support them in this significant North Sea development reflects their confidence and assurance in our ability to deliver our broad technical solutions safely, efficiently and effectively.
“We will bring our strong, global experience and expertise in the execution of hooks-ups to the project, where our focus will be working in close collaboration with Maersk towards its successful delivery.”
